North American Partner Solution Center delivers ByDesign Go-Live Experience (GLX) Workshop in Miami

In June we had the pleasure of presenting a ByDesign Go-Live Experience of 2017 in North America in Miami Florida. Eight Consultants from four different SAP ByDesign Business Partners attended and were enabled on the SAP Cloud ERP Implementation Methodology.

From 2007 through 2014 I was with the ByDesign North American Professional Services Group as a Project Manager and Supply Chain Consultant doing ByDesign Implementations. Via SAP’s and the North American Partner Solution Center’s increased emphasis on ByDesign am I am now able to leverage this experience and knowledge to ensure Partner Success with ByDesign.

These partners are now certified to Implement ByDesign with SAP’s Partner Tools and Methodologies.

A special thanks goes out to my co-presenter Luciano Ravenna – Regional Director Partner Solution Central North America, and to Jose Bastidas who presented reporting from ByDesign via the SAP Analytics Cloud.

During the four days, participants built out a blank ByDesign System into a Go-Live Ready State via the following agenda:

Day 1:

Introduction to the ByDesign Implementation Methodology

Day 2:

Day 3:

Day 4:

      Dear Jeff,

      The legislation in Argentina indicates that withholdings must be calculated and accounted for at the time of payment.

      Do you know if SAP ByD allows you to calculate withholdings when posting a payment?

      Will it be possible?
